Wildbirds & Peacedrums with Voices Tour Trailer
Published 27 April 2010 by BWL

Wildbirds & Peacedrums return in May with a very special European tour and Retina, the first of two vinyl only EPs. The Gothenburg-based duo will be accompanied by a handpicked 12-strong Swedish choir on the cluster of dates, which begins at the Pavement-curated ATP on Friday 14 May.

The release date for Retina has been put back to May 24 due to production problems, but it will be worth the wait - the 5-track EP will be pressed on white vinyl and housed in a stunning black and silver sleeve. We are confident that the band will have copies of the EP to sell at the shows, and we will make them available to purchase through our shop as soon as we can.

Here's a short taster of what to expect from the upcoming shows and EP, compiled from live footage from the recording in Iceland this January:

And youtube.

We are offering a free download of 'Fight For Me' from Retina to subscribers to the Leaf mailing list. Find out more by signing up or logging in here:

You can also hear 'Fight For Me' on the band's myspace:

Nancy Elizabeth On 'Kept Impulses' UK Tour With James Blackshaw & Hauschka
Published 29 April 2010 by BWL

Nancy Elizabeth begins her collaborative tour in May with 12-string guitarist James Blackshaw and prepared piano player Hauschka. Under the banner 'Kept Impulses', the dates begin with a prestigious show at the Barbican in London on May 10.

The three artists will be on stage together throughout, first performing on each other's songs in intimate musical conversation, before being joined by a chamber orchestra (directed by David Coulter and featuring multi-instrumentalist Thomas Bloch and harpist Julia Thornton) to play specially-commissioned arrangements of their material. This is a unique opportunity to hear three great individualists creating beautifully-matched music from the common ground that they share in modern folk, contemporary composition and bewitching song.

Here are the Kept Impulses dates plus a show in Malta and an appearance at the Big Session festival in June:
Mon 10 May - Kept Impulses, Barbican, London, UK
Wed 12 May - Kept Impulses, The Junction, Cambridge, UK
Thu 13 May - Kept Impulses, St George's, Bristol, UK
Fri 14 May - Kept Impulses, Holywell Music Room, Oxford, UK
Sat 15 May - Kept Impulses, Band On The Wall, Manchester, UK
Sun 16 May - Kept Impulses, The Roxy, Edinburgh, UK
Wed 9 Jun - MITP Theatre, Valletta, MALTA
Sat 19 Jun - Big Session, Leicester, UK
